Magic's Wendell Carter: Gets limited run in return
Carter (hip) played 16 minutes in Sunday's 123-110 loss to the Heat, finishing with zero points (0-3 FG, 0-3 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one steal.
Carter had missed the Magic's previous two games with left hip soreness, but he was able to finish the season on the court, albeit in a limited capacity. The fifth-year center wrapped up the 2022-23 campaign with averages of 15.2 points and 1.4 three-pointers -- both career highs -- to go with 8.7 boards, 2.3 assists, 0.6 blocks and 0.5 steals in 29.6 minutes per game over his 57 appearances....

Carter was initially listed as out for the season finale but got upgraded to questionable Saturday and now will end up starting.

After being upgraded from out to questionable earlier Friday, Carter has now been ruled out again and will miss back-to-back contests. His next chance to suit up will come during Orlando's regular-season finale in Miami, but it seems likely the Magic will opt to give players like Bol Bol, Chuma Okeke and Goga Bitadze extended looks over thrusting Carter back into game action with nothing to play for....

Carter (hip) has been upgraded to questionable for Friday's matchup at Brooklyn.

Magic's Wendell Carter: Turns away two shots in loss
Carter finished Tuesday's 113-108 loss to the Grizzlies with 14 points (5-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 29 minutes.
Carter has fallen short of a double-double in four straight games, but he's still chugging along nicely during that stretch with average or above-average contributions in six categories (15.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.8 three-pointers and 0.8 blocks per game, 55.8 percent shooting from the field, 84.6 percent from the free-throw line). The Magic are 4.5 games behind the Bulls for the final spot in the Eastern Conference Play-In Tournament, but head coach Jamahl Mosley has thus far shown no inclination to shut down Carter or any of the team's other top contributors....

Magic's Wendell Carter: Top rebounder in near double-double
Carter logged 16 points (7-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and eight rebounds over 31 minutes during Thursday's 111-106 win over the Knicks.
Carter led the Magic in rebounds while finishing as one of six players in double figures in scoring and ending two boards short of notching a double-double. Carter has posted at least 15 points with five or more rebounds on 29 occasions this year, including in six of his last seven outings.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Dominates in upset victory
Carter amassed 27 points (11-19 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three steals across 33 minutes during Saturday's 113-108 win over the Clippers.
Carter was on a mission Saturday, rocking a healthy double-double while adding season-high totals in both blocks and steals. Despite sitting outside the top 100 thus far this season, he has been putting up first-round value over the past two weeks. The Magic don't feel as though they are going to ease up down the stretch, meaning Carter should be locked into heavy minutes, barring any injuries.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Explosive outing in return
Carter (hip) notched 27 points (12-17 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 42 minutes during Saturday's 126-114 overtime victory over Miami.
After missing the Magic's previous three games with a hip injury, Carter looked to be fully healthy Saturday while logging a massive workload as the team's starting center. Miami had no answer for Carter inside, where he was a perfect 9-of-9 around the rim. Assuming Carter experiences no setbacks with his hip coming out of Saturday's game, he should be ready to go when the Magic kick off a four-game week Tuesday in San Antonio. The final two games of the week are part of a Saturday/Sunday back-to-back set versus the two Los Angeles teams, however, so Carter could be a candidate to sit out one of those contests....

Magic's Wendell Carter: Will be back in action Saturday
Carter (hip) is not on the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Heat.
The Magic's starting center will return following a three-game absence, so Moritz Wagner will presumably head back to the bench. Over Carter's past 10 appearances, he's averaged 15.0 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 28.0 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Sidelined again Thursday
Carter (hip) remains out for Thursday's contest versus the Jazz.
Carter will skip a third consecutive tilt with soreness in his left hip, and the Magic don't have much reason to rush him back to action. Moritz Wagner should receive another start at center in his absence, with Goga Bitadze also potentially factoring in. Carter's next opportunity to return surfaces Saturday versus the Heat....
